Route 66 Wall of Fame inductees announced

The first five members of the Laclede County Route 66 Wall of Fame are announced today by the Lebanon-Laclede County Route 66 Society. They will be inducted at the Route 66 Society’s annual membership meeting at 6 p.m. Jan. 24 at the Lebanon-Laclede County Library. The Wall of Fame honors “those who made exceptional contributions to the development or promotion of Route 66 or who operated legendary businesses on Route 66 in Laclede County, Missouri.” The inductees’ plaques will be displayed in or near the Route 66 Museum at the Lebanon-Laclede County Library. A plaque also will be presented to each inductee or a family member. The honorees were selected by a three-person committee with knowledge of local Route 66 history. More than 30 names were considered. Additions to the Wall of Fame will be made annually. For more on this story see Wednesday's LCR.
